The Lake Poets


The Lake Poets are a group of English poets of the Romantic Movement who lived in The Lake District (North West England). Among them the best known are William Wordsworth (1770-1850), Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834), and Robert Southey (1774-1843).

There, in the Lake District, the largest natural lake in England extends within the Lake District National Park in the impressive town of Windermere.

The Lake of Windermere in the Lake District of England.


Day after day, day after day,

We stuck, nor breath nor motion;

As idle as a painted ship

Upon a painted ocean.


Water, water, every where,

And all the boards did shrink;

Water, water, every where,

Nor any drop to drink.

(From “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner” by Coleridge)
